RESOLUTION NO. RS2003-1595
A resolution accepting the 2003 Plan Update for the Bellevue Community adopted by the Metropolitan Planning Commission on February 13, 2003.
Whereas, Section 18.02 of the Charter of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requires that zoning regulations be enacted by the Council "only on the basis of a comprehensive plan prepared by the Metropolitan Planning Commission;" and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Planning Commission, in order to fulfill its duty to develop and maintain the General Plan to provide the basis for zoning decisions, has divided the County into fourteen subareas and developed specific plans for each such subarea; and
Whereas, the Plan for Subarea 6 encompasses the community traditionally known as Bellevue; and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Planning directed its staff to work with Bellevue citizens to conduct public meetings and take such other steps deemed necessary to provide public input and review needed to update the Subarea 6 Plan; and
Whereas, thirteen community meetings were held between March 2002 and January 2003, at which community members worked extensively with Planning Department staff to develop their vision for the future of Bellevue; and
Whereas, the 2003 Plan Update for the Bellevue Community was approved by the Metropolitan Planning Commission, following a public hearing, on February 13, 2003; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council recognize the efforts of Bellevue citizens in developing the 2003 Plan Update for the Bellevue Community.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
SECTION 1. The Metropolitan Council hereby goes on record as accepting the Plan for the Bellevue Community, which was adopted by the Metropolitan Planning Commission on February 13, 2003.
